Black and white: How to wear it well

Hello loves! This week’s outfit includes a Black and White casual ensemble that was simple to put together. The classic color combination of black and white is one that will always work no matter what. I also find that this combination creates a very modern and crisp look that will give you a certain elegance. Since it refuses to warm up, I wore a black long sleeved sweater, blazer, white cropped skinny jeans and accessorized with a statement necklace to give it some pizzaz!

Tips on wearing black and white:

Wearing black and white is a no brainer however there are 3 things to consider before you do:

  1. Stay within the color theme: If you are wearing a black top and white pants or vice versa, avoid wearing a pink and yellow scarf for example. I know this may seem restricting and old school but it really just doesn’t work. You want to keep the color them flowing.
  2. Accessorize: To avoid looking too plain unless thats the look you are going for which is totally fine on some days. Add some accessories to make your outfit fabulous. See how I wore a statement necklace to give a bit of character. You can also go simpler with a dainty necklace and stud earrings. White pearls also work well with these 2 colors.
  3. Watch out for stains: Last but not least, when wearing an outfit with white you have to be more careful than usual were you sit, how you eat etc. as you can easily turn your crisp look into a messy one. I have noticed that even the smallest stain on white just ruins the entire outfit.

When was the last time you wore a black and white outfit? How do you like to style it? I would love to know you thoughts on this topic , your comments are always welcome!
